    [QUOTE]That's gorgeous LTG!  I love the bodice!  What's the designer?
    Posted by Elle1036[/QUOTE]

    Thank you! The bodice definitely played a big choice in my selection. The designer is Maggie Sottero (or Sottero and Midgley maybe, but I think just Maggie.)

    ETA: And Audre, this was my second shopping trip. The salon I went to had limited stock for Maggie/S&M (hehe) because they'd only recently added her to the collection, so I had to go back when they got more stock in.

    I tried to convince my friend to buy a Maggie when she was wedding dress shopping but her budget wasn't quite big enough for it.

    I'm not entirely sure. My friend had a pretty small budget. The one we were looking at was just over $1,000.

    The dress I wore to prom was a black, low back dress with a white rose pattern that "trickled" down the back of the dress beneath the dip. It made me look like I had a butt. It was also the first time I wore a sticky bra. :)

    ETA: I just realized I am exactly at the 11 month mark. O.O

    I loved my prom dress! It was green with beading at the bottom. Here's a pic (that's my brother in the picture)

    This is me and my dad before prom. I absolutely loved this dress and it was probably the first time I ever loved my boobs. It had an open back, so it was also a first, in that I didn't wear a bra for the first time since 6th grade. I loved the way it made me feel and look, but my mom called me a whore and said I looked like a hooker when I tried it on for her. My dad, on the other hand, said I looked beautiful and he loved me in the color red. Reason #34987 why I liked my dad more than my mom in HS. 

    Anyways, LTG, I bet your wedding dress is going to make your butt look phenominal as well. :) I really wish your sister would hurry up with those pics!

    Ooh!  You look so pretty Beth! I love the color of your dress. I kind of regret wearing a black dress because I do feel it was my only chance to wear a color of dress that I wouldn't normally wear.

    Thanks :) My mom is the one who picked it. I didn't think I would like it but I ended up loving the color.

    Aw, Beth.  You're adorable.

    Ok, I found a picture.  You can only see the top part of the dress, but it was really plain, so you'll get the idea.  I remember that I had to leave a soccer game at halftime to be able to make it to the dance.  Also, the girl in the picture with me is not my date.  She was my high school best friend and soccer teammate.  I miss her.  We've completely lost touch.

    I've gained more weight than I care to admit since high school :( and it's a pain in the a$s to lose it now. Oh well.

    Also, I would kill for arms like Elle's. I've always hated my arms.
